Services are normally provided in one hour sessions. Other arrangements can be made to suit individual clients.

How we work
Careers advice sessions can be arranged daytimes, evenings or weekends. They can be either face to face, by telephone or video call.
The face to face sessions take place at a mutually agreed venue that provides a quiet and comfortable space to ensure the efficacy of the session.
If for any reason you are unable to attend, we request that you provide a minimum of 24 hours notice so that other clients may utilise the opportunity of an earlier appointment. If 24 hours’ notice is given a 50% refund will be given. Less than this, no refund will be given.
Prices and Payment
Fees for individual guidance sessions are charged at £30 per hour for clients in employment. For clients who are unemployed or on means tested benefits such as housing benefit or working tax credit, the cost will be £25 per hour. (These prices are current at January 2021 but are subject to change). These charges relate to any method of guidance delivery and at any time of day/evening.
The first session will normally comprise some additional time to identify and evaluate the client requirements and ways of working. This time is free of charge and, if after this time the client does not feel they wish to continue working with Jampacked Careers, there will be no charges incurred.
Payment is required either prior to the session booked or at the end of the advice session payable by cheque, cash or direct bank transfer.
Jampacked Careers has professional indemnity, public and products liability insurance underwritten by Direct Line.
CV’s, Action Plans and other personal information will be held on computer and back up discs for 6 months, after which time the information will be deleted and any related paperwork will be destroyed. Should you require your details to be held for a longer period please advise us.
